Our service this morning was led by Barbara Lunn. We listened to readings from Jetemiah and Luke.
Barbara used the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to talk about our relationship with God. Jesus taught through the use of parables, stories that were understandable to those listening. This is a modern day parable and each day we might be one of the characters and come out of the day differently. We try to get God’s approval each day, God doesn’t have a golden ticket. We are more likely Charlie and the tax collectors, asking for forgiveness. Pride was what drove the children, we need to get rid of our pride so that we become better people and know God better.
